Section 68 approvals

Numerous building and construction, and amusement activities require the City's approval under section 68 of the Local Government Act.

Temporary structures

A temporary structure includes tents, marquees, stalls, hoardings and ground anchoring/shoring systems and any other structure that is not permanent. In most cases formal approval is required to erect or install a temporary structure.

Construction activity impacts

To minimise construction impacts the City expects and requires work to be done in a controlled and orderly manner.
